    Support Mechanisms
    It is our goal to provide each student with the tools and support systems that he/she needs in order to be successful.  This goal is accomplished in a variety of ways:
     
    Daily Homeroom Session
       Homeroom is a daily synchronous session in which the following is accomplished.
    1.  Attendance is taken (we want to ensure that students are engaged each and every day).
    2.  District announcements are delivered (i.e. Keystone testing dates).
    3.  Student expectations are reviewed (weekly deadlines, marking period deadlines, etc.)
    4.  One-on-One "Student Reflection" meetings are conducted in which an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) is reviewed with each      student (highlights progress in each course and outlines missing work, as applicable).
     
    Students also have the opportunity to ask questions related to orientation, technical concerns, etc.
